Technically, I don't think DeFratus was even unavailable.

JSalisburyCSN Manuel said he was trying to stay away from DeFratus Bullpen was short

He was 'trying to stay away from him'. Why? The guy didn't even play for us the first month of the season. What the hell are you doing? If you knew Horst was going to fail then why did you leave him in? You just conceded the game!

And Adams is hurt again. So glad we wasted all our money on a set up man that can't even pitch! We could've used that money to get an actual hitter. But no, let's waste it on a 34 year old reliever who had to get offseason surgery!
